Queensland Australia: Local Circumstances of the Total Solar Eclipse of the Sun 14 November 2012

Queensland Australia - Local Circumstances Total Solar Eclipse of the Sun

14 November 2012

 

Shortly after sunrise the Total Solar Eclipse passes over Queensland's tropical region on the morning of 14 November 2012. Only viewers directly under the narrow Total Solar Eclipse Path will be able to observe totality. The path of totality is approximately 143km / 88 miles wide and any viewer outside this narrow track will not be able to view the Total Solar Eclipse. The further an observer is from the path of totality - the less the Sun will be obscured by the Moon and only a partial eclipse is visible. Partial Solar Eclipses are less dramatic than a Total Solar eclipse. But nevertheless they are still interesting to observe. 

 

Australia is the only country in the world where the umbra shadow passes directly over landfall

Australia is the only country in the world where the umbra shadow of the 2012 Total Solar Eclipse passes over land, and Queensland is in a prime position. Seeing a Total Solar Eclipse is one of the most amazing sights of nature that it is ever possible to see - it is truly a magnificent sight.  

 

The Tropical coastline of n.e.Queensland is the most dense region the umbra shadow passes over.

The tropical coastline of north east Queensland is the most dense region the umbra shadow passes over, and it will bring darkness to the morning time daylight, enticing animals to settle-down and sleep; and they do seem to get very confused. For those that are under the under the eclipse path of totality, you are about to witness one of the most awesome beautiful natural events it is ever possible to see.    

 

 

Cairns, Port Douglas, and Oak Beach, plus other settlements and towns along the sandy shores of Queensland picturesque beaches are in for a wonderful treat on Wednesday morning of the 14 November 2012... an Ecclipse of the Sun.

Totality: Port Douglas and Cairns are both under the path of the Total Solar Eclipse

Both Port Douglas and Cairns are under the path of Totality and observors will be abale to see a Total Eclipse of the Sun. It will be wonderful.

 

Oak Beach is directly under the central path of the solar eclipse.

The centre line of the eclipse passes over the settlement of Oak  Beach; and Oak Beach marks the imaginary line which divides the eclipse track between the northern and southern limits, extending outwards from here for about 44 miles / 71 kilometres each side. At Oak Beach the path of Totality will be 88miles/143 kilometres wide, and the Total Solar Eclipse will have a maximum duration of 2 minutes 4 seconds. Local time Eastern Standard Time [EST] will be 06.38;29.4 and the Sun will be quite low at 14 degrees from the horizon.
